    Hello localtopia.

    You would need to set Conditions to Send an e-mail after submission based on a form entry. You can read more about setting conditions here:


    You should go to Setup & Embed > Conditions > Send an e-mail after submission.


    Please make sure that the you add two of these rules, one at the time.

    The first one should be If "name of the form field of that checkbox" Is Equal To the expected value, send Notification to the special email address.

    After that, please add another rule that says the opposite: if that field is Not Equal To that checkbox value, then send Notifications to the default email address on which you wish to receive the email notifications.

    That would be it. Please let me know if you need any help with setting this up.

    Kind regards.
